    Facebook vs Snapchat – Who will win even though facebook copies snapchat

Snapchat, one of the hottest mobile messaging apps, has become a convenient and fun way to send photos and videos to friends and family without eating up your phone’s memory. Launched in 2011, Snapchat allows users to add captions, drawings and filters to their photos and videos (also known as “snaps”). Unlike other messaging apps, you can view snaps for a maximum of 10 seconds, and then it’s gone for good.
 
We’re now just a week away from the highly anticipated Snap, Inc. (NYSE:SNAP) IPO, and it’s easy to fear the worst. Most of the reports that you’ve probably read – including many of those by my fellow Fools — are blasting the social media upstart as an investment. Snapchat’s popular, but mounting losses and monetization challenges make it a risky bet for most portfolios. I won’t argue against the low floor, but I think the market’s also ignoring the high ceiling. Let’s go over a few reasons why Snapchat’s parent company may make sense in your portfolio.
The IPO is unusual in that investors aren’t granted voting rights, with Reuters calls “an unprecedented feature that has raised concerns among corporate governance leaders that other high-valuation companies may follow suit and leave investors with little say over company operations.” The price values Snap at a little under $24 billion, around the valuation of Google at the time of its IPO but far smaller than Facebook, which was valued at over $81 billion when it debuted, according to snap stock forecast. Facebook, which owns Instagram, announced Tuesday that it would be giving Instagram users the ability to send disappearing photos to a single friend or to a select group of friends, essentially Snap’s core function. Previously, disappearing messages were only a part of Instagram Stories, in photos or videos are visible to all of your followers.

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do. Once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, “and what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?”

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that, nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”

But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket and looked at it and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet,

    for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket,
    or a watch to take out of it, and,
    burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole, under the hedge.

In another moment, down went Alice after it!

The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down what seemed to be a very deep well.
